The #table created by the first stored procedure needs to exist before the second stored procedure calling it can...
be created. Actually it is a rule that all the #tables referenced in a stored procedure must exist at the time of creating the stored procedure otherwise the stored procedure will not be created. This is irrespective of which stored procedure creates the #table initially.
The best practice is for you to create these objects in sequence in the same session as follows:
create #<TABLE_NAME> (...) go create procedure <PROC1> AS ... go create procedurte <PROC2> AS ... goPlease note that the #table must exist before either PROC1 or PROC2 can be created. It is also a good practice to ensure that PROC1 exists before PROC2 is created; otherwise you will get a warning.
